Rapidly Progressive Transthyretin-Mediated Amyloidosis in a Domino Liver Transplant Recipient of a Ser23Asn Donor

imageDomino liver transplantation, in which the liver of a patient with transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis is transplanted into another patient, has been an established procedure performed at several centers across the world. The risk of developing systemic amyloidosis in transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis liver transplant recipients is a topic of ongoing investigation.
